    SEDALIA, Mo. | Officials are trying to determine whether to file charges against a man who fatally shot his wife while trying to install a satellite television system in their home.

    Patsy D. Long, 34, of Deepwater, was pronounced dead early Saturday evening after being shot in the chest with a .22-caliber handgun. Her husband, Ronald Long, fired the shot from the inside of their home after several unsuccessful efforts to punch a hole through the exterior wall using other means.

    The woman, who was outside the house, was hit by the second of two shots fired by Ronald Long, the Henry County Sheriff’s Department said.
    Sheriff’s Department spokesman Maj. Robert Hills said a person involved in such a case normally would be charged with manslaughter, but that was up to the prosecutor.

    “Once we complete a diagram of the incident, we will be submitting everything to the prosecuting attorney and let him decide if he wants to press criminal charges,” Hills said.

    Henry County Coroner Scott Largent declined to release details about Patsy Long’s death until the Sheriff’s Department completes its investigation.

    You know he's gotta feel real bad. What do you think his odds are for being prosecuted?

    What is really the travesty out of all horrific accidents is that this person has to:

    1. Realize the responsibility for taking one's life
    2. Live with the loss of a gone spouse

    Then, having to serve time in prison after all of this.

    I don't know enough of the local politics in KC to make any meaningful prediction on whether he'll be charged with any crime. The guy's guilty of being a moroon, without a doubt, and that has consequences...

    I wouldn't really call it a KC thing. Sedalia is a good ways outside the city. About a 40 min. drive (doing 75).

    Maybe he should sue Charter cable for not providing the NFL Network, thus requiring the installation of dish, which ultimately led to the loss of life ;)
